Selecting the BEST Books For Speech Therapy

Tuesday, August 14, 2018
I often get asked how I select the books I use. Literacy-based speech therapy is something I'm passionate about and I love sharing my ideas for using more children's books in our therapy sessions.

Back To School Books For Speech Therapy

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

I LOVE this time of year. All the fresh school supplies, everyone is rejuvenated from summer break and ready for a new school year in speech therapy. Lessons from picture books give us the ability to set the tone for acceptance, encourage kindness, or quiet uneasy nerves of students all while building vocabulary, literacy, and language skills.
There are SO many books with a back-to-school theme, I'm giving my favorites here and a highlight of how I use them with language bookmarks that you can download to use with them.
